As busy law enforcement officials tending to traffic safety and enforcement on New Jersey’s busiest transportation arteries, New Jersey State Police (NJSP) Troop D needed a state-of-the-art, efficient station to support their patrol units. Their 1950s-era Bloomfield Station was cramped, did not comply with current building codes and operational standards, and did not bolster the troop’s ability to patrol its designated 321 miles of parkway and turnpike.

What We Did

As part of the New Jersey Turnpike Authority’s $350 million facilities improvement program, Gannett Fleming designed a replacement station that provides Troop D with five times more room and the safety and communication equipment they need to maintain public safety. The facility features the latest security and communications systems, meets LEED® Silver standards, and enhances the troop’s ability to provide quick response to incidents. Features such as reinforced walls, detention-grade materials, interior and exterior security cameras, and facility hardening help maintain officers’ safety. Facility maintenance is not anticipated for 20 to 30 years, increasing the station’s cost effectiveness.

Key Features

  • Troop D maintained operations throughout construction
  • Phased construction and staging avoided traffic disruptions on the Garden State Parkway.

Sustainability Features & Outcomes

  • Landscaping requires minimal water, resulting in utility cost savings
  • High-performance envelope, daylighting, and energy conservation reduce energy costs
  • Recycled building content kept trips to the landfill at a minimum
  • Stormwater management system ensures environmentally sound runoff treatment.
